1. Children’s Photobooks: Not Just for Children →

    As an adult, I have always loved children’s books. Before I had kids, I used to position myself close to other people’s children in bookstores as I indulged my picture book habit. The idea was to give the appearance that I was somehow connected to someone else’s unsuspecting child and therefore ‘vetted’ as a children’s book browser … Finally, a few years later, with my own children in tow, I could freely enter the children’s section at my local bookstore without any fear of my true motives being discovered.

    At Monsters and Madonnas, the blog of International Center of Photography Library, Russet Lederman offers a “highly personal” selection of photo-stories, including the forthcoming Taka-chan and I (Betty Jean Lifton and Eikoh Hosoe).
